Executive Chef Adam Tanner
Executive Chef Adam Tanner joined CityGate Grille in 2008 and became its Executive Chef in 2016.
Chef Adam’s mission is to make people happy through food.
" I fell in love with cooking sitting at my great grandmother’s table,” he says. “She cooked
professionally and for our very large family, and the passion and joy she brought to every meal
made a huge impression on me.”
Chef Adam believes in using the very best ingredients and letting them be the star. He also
believes what makes CityGate Grille so great is the longevity of his amazing team in the kitchen.
“It's always about the food and the team, never about me,” he says.
Chef Adam was trained at the Cooking and Hospitality Institute of Chicago.
